It doesn’t matter You can get anything you want today, Your shopping list, the sky’s the limit, Super-sized the new cliché, We ingest, grow fat or vomit It doesn’t matter what you want to get Credit cards to save the needy Shopping binge, creating debt We consume, grow numb and greedy It doesn’t matter what you want to buy You can pay it later on It doesn’t matter, any time you want 24/7, dusk to dawn It’s an insatiable hunger, An urge, acquired greed It doesn’t matter what you want, create need. It doesn’t matter where you burn the cash Magazines stir up the passion Today’s hype, tomorrow’s trash Keep in style, stay in fashion The flashing neon signs, Pointing our thoughts direction If economy declines Pray for its resurrection

You & I 02:33
You & I Is it an instinct, a common reaction, A prehistoric way to survive. I rest my case, please don't ruin my face As long as you spare me this riot. Every other choice than to raise our voice Seems appropriate we use it instead An act out of self-preservation That later turns into regret You & I Keeping the silence You & I Feeding the violence You & I Keeping the silence Cause only the actual facts seem to speak themselves Without a reason, a good explanation It looks like the shit hit the van. Reach for your crotch, while the bystanders watch And now you're waiting for the Good Samaritan. Every other choice than to raise their voice Seems appropriate they misapprehend It's their act of self-preservation As you feel silence means consent It should be You & I Breaking the silence You & I Facing the violence You & I Breaking the silence Cause only the actual facts seem to speak themselves

Break down the wall They feed us fear through TV dinners all year and we swallow whatever they serve They spice up the lies making sure it's suffice And intentionally striking a nerve It's just like that We don't seem to care They do it every day turn off the news I am getting confused The truth is drifting away They read us stories about victory and glory from good over evil each night Isn't it great when you know who to hate, So much easier to be on our sight It's just like that We don't seem to care They do it everyday Whether it's treason Religion or reason The truth is drifting away Break down the wall That narrows my mind Look for an opening, that's so hard to find Break down the wall inside my head Never to build it again We close our eyes, cover our ears We see what we see, hear what we hear Confirmation of opinion Blame it on the ones we fear

Saturday 02:48
Saturday Wake up cause duty calls again to work on a chain gang of modern men finding my way somehow to make it through the dayshift this week Head numb walk the assembly line whistle blows it’s clocking time open the gates just four more days and I’ll be celebrating.... Saturday my liberation day Thank god for Saturday I loose my leash and I cross my limits Give me some oblivion cause it’s Saturday I loose my leash and I cross my limits Wake up to the call of recovery last night a distant memory The party’s over and I am picking up the pieces again Feels like personal rise and fall Head hurts fell from my pedestal Next week I will be crawling back up there to celebrate my Saturday my liberation day Thank god for Saturday I loose my leash and I cross my limits Give me some oblivion Cause it’s Saturday I loose my leash and I cross my limits My life’s as empty as the glass I hold a predictable strong weekly routine another shattered dream of which I am running once a week to be king for one day I am on a roll I am on a mission Out of control it’s my tradition

Killing anger Alienated Alone all the time With your parents always working The TV was your babysitter Building bombs, Just passing your time Loving guns and playing violent games on your computer Bullied around, one thing on your mind They read it in your essays (your essays had it coming) Full of violence, always hate related What the hell The shrink said you were fine Some blame it on you listening to Marilyn Manson Unhappy, a loser, depressive, abuser A feeling for violence This massacre is making no sense neurotic, obsessive, pathetic, aggressive expression is so cool Killing all the anger, bring your gun to high school Walking to school one thing on your mind today is gonna be the day that everybody will remember You were hurt And now it's their time Taking your gun and turn this school into a shooting ally Never were so Trigger happy

Every generation Hanging around being bored to the core looking for liquor but too young to score Nowhere to party, get into a fight! fuck the world it is friday night Hate our songs, hate our fashion put us down we don’t need compassion We give you the finger and laugh in your face Don’t you know it’s just a passing phase... Every generation has a youth of today Disagree, never listen We’re taking all that you’ve been missing how we end up, we haven’t a clue but probably the same as you Cause every generation has a youth of today Through my eyes you’ll never see We agree to disagree I took the torch and now I pass it on to you Cause every generation needs its youth of today

Big old boring man Easy to condemn the big old boring man turned down garbage can the big old boring man this couch’s his home he never leaves sitting around, the curtains closed the world outside’s shown on TV the world inside suppressed bij medicine therapy caries little weight it took to long, his mind is closed his body is a rubbish dump frustration’s fed, filling up on discontent the big old boring man turned down garbage can please believe me, this is true you point the finger someone else is judging you just beware that all you do don’t close the curtains, grow big and bold and boring too please believe me, this is true Easy to condemn the big old boring man

Brains on bleach (Hydrogen Peroxide causes Xenophobia) You say our land’s invaded Talking rubbish, spreading hatred and putting all the progress in reverse Freedom of speech you say, gives you the right to put morality aside your arrogance is making matters worse Is paranoia getting hard to bare? or could it be the chemicals with which you die your hair? Damned your brain’s on bleach your brain’s on bleach it causes tunnel vision your brain’s on bleach your brain’s on bleach starting an inquisition You’re breaking news again Inflaming hatred everywhere you can Ad fuel to the flames when fire burns you run away and we hardly ever hear a solution freedom of speech you say gives you the right to put morality aside and broadcast cinematic frustration Is paranoia getting hard to bare? or could it be the chemicals with which you die your hair? Damned your brain’s on bleach your brain’s on bleach it causes tunnel vision your brain’s on bleach your brain’s on bleach starting an inquisition You’re breaking news again Inflaming hatred everywhere you can bleach causes a narrow-mind Xenophobic going blind Saw your movie, stupid flick Propaganda politics You and I never agree Your hair contains more chemicals Then there will ever be between you, me and your ideology Add fuel to the flame Provocation is your game You start a fire Cross my wire

Rat race 03:16
Rat Race Up and down and round the bend we go again, countdown has begun, Turn the ignition on Moving into gear, And here we go again We can't afford to rest, Got to keep up with the best Living in the fast lane's much too slow, so sorry Add a little extra now you flow, just hurry Step on it, rise above the crowd Overtaking is allowed Hurry up, make haste, Here we go again, We're stepping on the gas, heading for success This rat race never stops, So here we go again, The rear-view mirror shows, The competition grows Living in the fast lane's much too slow, so sorry Add a little extra now you flow, just hurry Step on it, rise above the crowd Overtaking is allowed Don't slow me down, don't slow me down, don't slow me down, let's hurry On the outside we look cool, but we're running out of fuel Trying hard to keep up pace, Trying not to lose our face, We are getting round the rules, We are agitated fools, Victory's our only drive, Let's hear it for this hectic life!

Animals 01:10
Animals I know they fed us with a reason Slaughterhouse it smells like treason I don’t want to go there Where can we fight this resolution? We want a trial before an execution I don’t want to go there Animals have no human rights Animals have no human rights at all The trucks outside match my assumption We are the victems of the mass consumption Some say you die you go to heaven I think we end up in a 7-eleven Animals have no human rights Animals have no human rights at all

Rise again 03:14
Rise again See the sickness fill the skies The heat is on, Kyoto cries Optimism’s slowly wearing thin Highways jammed with SUV’s causing clotted arteries cardiac arrest is kicking in.... And emissions rise again we’re turning up the heat they rise again Rise again Emissions there on the rise again Make a-mends For the mass Let’s make amends For the mass Let’s make a-mends Are we still in time to make amends? fuck the forest, can’t you see that money doesn’t grow on trees Selfishness polluted our minds Giving in to simple greed Taking things that we don’t need eventually we’re robbing this world blind And emissions rise again we’re turning up the heat they rise again Rise again Emissions there on the rise again Make a-mends For the mass Let’s make amends For the mass Let’s make a-mends Are we still in time to make amends?

Whose side are you on? It's so easy to provoke Calling every one a joke don't think I am a sitting duck The sermon you deliver sucks All you do is criticize try to convince us with your lies I don't convert in any case I spit it right back in your face! You look down on us from up your pulpit I try so hard to understand But all the words you're throwing at me Just fade like footprints in the sand Bore us with your prophecies (But) you won't get me on my knees I'll conduct my own defence I'll just ignore your ignorance It won't matter what we do Your arrogance will pull you trough And all your fundamental rage Will still be sounding from some stage You look down on us from up your pulpit I try so hard to understand But all the words you're throwing at me Just fade like footprints in the sand Whose side are you on?

Voices 02:30
Voices Life sucks, it shows It's difficult dealing with feelings you hardly know Time cures, they say If it isn't the case will you try to move on anyway? Into your world where you hear the voices screaming where living is like dreaming Into your world Where the inside's always aching Where reality is faking You changed, you did You used to be different by being a regular kid You're fucked, they say They don't understand the battle your facing each day Into your world where you hear the voices screaming where living is like dreaming Into your world Where the inside's always aching Where reality is faking I know they're mistaken I know your world is breaking Your world is breaking down

Lucky loser 03:56
Lucky loser Watching them burn some of the bridges of my past way too hard to make them last I separate my rights from wrongs and put them down into a song trying to unfold this story is getting old but I believe I never told I am cleaning up the mess I am taking out the trash Try to erase my gloomy point of view but here we go again fucking far from Zen running round in circles heading for a trench can’t stand the thought of losing that’s why I’m digging in Hope I am a lucky loser there’s a chance I just might win Letting it go try to clear my worried head and just enjoy the ride instead destination is unknown hope to reap what I have sown try to erase my gloomy point of view but here we go again fucking far from Zen running round in circles heading for a trench can’t stand the thought of losing that’s why I’m digging in Hope I am a lucky loser there’s a chance I just might win The road ahead can look so scary different than the ordinary Is this what I want Please tell me what I want today Bang here we go again fucking far from Zen running round in circles heading for a trench can’t stand the thought of losing that’s why I’m digging in Hope I am a lucky loser there’s a chance I just might win
